I tried to obtain an authorization code from Register.com today and gave up. I sat on hold for 45 minutes – there were no ‘we estimate you have 10 minutes’ or ‘are number 20 in the queue,’ which would have been helpful.

I contacted a Live Chat tech and asked about wait times on the phone, he invited me to ‘continue to wait and my call would be answered shortly’ and he ‘would forward my comments to the appropriate department but could not give me my authorization key.’

This is why all my domains are now on Enom.
